باب السَّتْرِ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِ وَدَفْعِ الْحُدُودِ بِالشُّبُهَاتِ
Sunan Ibn Majah 2545
It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
“Ward off the legal punishments as much as you can.”
حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ الْجَرَّاحِ، حَدَّثَنَا وَكِيعٌ، عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ الْفَضْلِ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ ادْفَعُوا الْحُدُودَ مَا وَجَدْتُمْ لَهُ مَدْفَعًا ‏"‏ ‏.‏
